2010 WSANZ Connecting Women: Respecting Differences – Scholarships available for Wahine Maori

2 min read

Applications are now open for a limited number of scholarships to cover travel, accommodation and registration expenses for ethnic community women to participate in the 2010 WSANZ Connecting Women: Respecting Differences Conference.

The theme of this conference is exploring the diverse experiences of women according to their ethnicity, culture, age, sexuality, religion, disability, and other differences. We strongly encourage ethnic community women to attend and present at the 2010 WSANZ Connecting Women: Respecting Differences Conference. We also recognise that financial barriers to participation disproportionately affect women in marginalised social groups. Thus, applications are now invited from Maori and Pasifika women, ethnic, migrant, and refugee women living in New Zealand.

An application form is attached. We encourage you to distribute this information via your networks, and to actively encourage women who may be interested in participating in this conference to apply. If awarded, the scholarship will cover conference registration fees, the conference dinner, travel costs if travelling from outside of Hamilton/Kirikiriroa, and accommodation costs (staying at The University of Waikato student halls).

Applications close on 16th August 2010.

  • Send in your registration form before 30 June 2010 to receive an early-bird discount.
  • Deadline for 200 word abstracts and proposals for papers, panels, performances & workshops:
    30 September 2010. We will also be offering a peer-reviewed paper option: Submit your full written paper by 30 June 2010. All contributions in line with WSANZ aims will be accepted. To be eligible to present at this conference, you must be a woman member of WSANZ in 2010/11.
